    Cellulitis is a serious bacterial infection that is characterized by red and swollen areas on the skin. The condition may spread quickly to other areas of the body. The most commonly affected areas of the body are the lower legs, although it affects other areas of the body as well.

    The disease may affect either the outer layer of the skin or the tissues underneath your skin, from where it may spread to your bloodstream and the lymph nodes. If the condition is not treated on time, it may turn into a life threatening one.


    You may experience inflammation and redness on your skin
    The affected area may become tender and painful
    The area may feel warm
    Presence of skin rashes around the area
    Pus filled formations on the skin
    The skin may have a tight and swollen appearance
    You may run a fever
    Feeling dizzy and fatigued if the condition turns serious

    This condition occurs when bacteria such as Streptococcus and Staphylococcus enter the body through cuts or cracks on the skin. Surgical incisions, cuts and insect bites are usually the causes of the infection. Some other risk factors include a weak immune system, diabetes and skin conditions such as eczema and athlete's foot.
    The condition is treated by antibiotics. If oral medications do not work, then the medicine may be administered intravenously.

    There are certain preventive measures which you can employ to minimize the risks of cellulitis:

    If you have a wound or cut in the body, make sure to apply ointments that help in killing the germs.
    Always wash your wounds with warm water and soap.
    Apply bandage to the area to prevent exposure to dust and bacteria. Make sure that you replace the bandages on a regular basis.
    On any sign of infection such as redness and pus drainage, consult a doctor.
    Apply moisturizer on your skin to prevent cracks on the skin.
    Take care while trimming your finger and toe nails so as to not injure the skin around the nail.

    To scratch an itch is to scratch many itches: placing nails to skin brings sweet yet short-lived relief because it often instigates another bout of itchiness. The unexpected culprit behind this vicious cycle, new research reveals, is serotonin, the so-called happiness hormone.

    Scientists thought itch was merely a mild form of pain until 2009, when zhou-feng chen and his colleagues at the center for the study of itch at washington university in st. Louis discovered itch-specific neurons in mice. Though not identical, itch and pain are closely related; they share the same pathways in certain brain areas. Because of the doubling up, activating one suppresses the other, which is why scratching blocks the itch sensation momentarily. The act, however, also triggers the release of the chemical serotonin, which helps to alleviate pain. It is that burst that makes scratching feel good, but recent work by chen's group showed that it exacerbates the itch-scratch cycle, too.

    Itch-sensing neurons have a set of receptors that facilitates pain relief and another that induces itch. Serotonin can bind only to the pain-related receptor, but because the two sets sit close to each other and physically interact, the chemical's arrival indirectly enhances the itch pathway. When chen and his colleagues activated both receptors simultaneously in mice, the rodents scratched much more than if the itch-inducing receptor was turned on alone. In another experiment, mice lacking the cells that produce serotonin scratched less than normal mice when exposed to a skin irritant. The findings were published in the journal neuron.

    Scientists have yet to locate itch-specific neurons in humans (macaques have them). For now it is safe to say: think twice before you twitch to the itch.

    Dry skin is a condition caused by the lack of moisture in skin. Fine lines and wrinkles are just some of the conditions, which may be caused due to dry skin. Dry skin can also be very uncomfortable. The condition is mostly caused by environmental factors such as exposure to harsh weather conditions or getting soaked in hot water.

    People at risk:
    1. Age: People who are older than 40 years of age tend to be more at risk of dry skin than people who are younger than 40 years.
    2. Climate: As mentioned earlier, weather conditions play a pivotal role in causing dry skin. Therefore, people who live in areas where the climate is either very hot or very cold tend to get dry skin more often than people who live in temperate climates. Low humidity is another factor which causes dry skin.
    3. Profession: Some professions, such as nursing or hairstyling requires frequent usage of hot water all through the day, which can also lead to dry skin.
    4. Swimming: Swimming is one of the major causes of dry skin. This is especially true in pools, which have chlorine. This is because chlorine increases the itchiness on your skin.

    1. Lifestyle changes: Usually, lifestyle changes such as avoiding long, hot showers and putting moisturizers are good enough to make sure that dry skin goes away.
    2. Lactic acid: Creams with lactic acid and urea can be prescribed by your doctor, if the dryness of your skin does not go away with moisturizers. These creams are usually over-the-counter medications.
    3. Prescription creams: Prescription creams are given, only when conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis or ichthyosis are present.
    4. Wet dressing: Wet dressing is given only when dermatitis has set in, as it mostly help in preventing the infection.
    4. Oiling: Oiling your body, especially with fish or flaxseed oil, ensures that your body does not succumb to dry skin.
    5. Hand sanitizer: Normal hand sanitizers tend to make your hands dry. Thus, dermatologists recommend hydrating hand sanitizers that allow your hands to maintain their moisture. Therefore, whenever you are using a hand sanitizer, use a hydrating one.

    Select products from a manufacturer who uses high-quality pure ingredients free of contaminants
    Paraben preservatives have proven to be least problematic
    For cleansing, use SYNDET bars/Lipid-free cleansers

    Draelos cosmetic selection criteria in sensitive skin

    Powder cosmetics should be selected
    Cosmetics should be water removable
    Old cosmetics should be discarded
    Eyeliner and mascara should be black

    What is Melasma?
    Melasma is derived from the greek word 'Melas' meaning black.

    It is an acquired disorder of symmetrical hyperpigmentation appearing as light brown to dark, muddy brown patches usually on the face, especially on the forehead, cheeks, and chin.

    Who are more prone to Melasma? Which age group is most affected?
    Proneness to melasma varies according to race (Southeast Asian), skin type(darker), sex(F:M=4;1), Middle-aged females are more commonly affected

    Which areas are typically affected?
    Areas typically affected are Face, mainly forehead, cheeks, nose, upper lip or chin.

    What causes Melasma? What are the triggers?
    The exact cause is not known but it seems to be multifactorial. Genetic predisposition, hormonal factors, and darker skin type are some of the known risk factors. sun exposure is a commonly reported trigger due to stimulation of melanocytes, the cells producing the pigment melanin. Many patients note the onset or worsening of the disease with pregnancy or oral contraceptive use. Other less commonly reported risk factors include thyroid disorders, phototoxic medications, and cosmetics.

    What are the different stages?
    No stages described

    What does Melasma look like on the skin?
    Light to dark brown symmetrical patches

    What are the signs & symptoms?
    Other than patches, it has no symptoms (like itch, pain etc)

    When should a doctor be consulted?
    Doctor should be consulted at the earliest for better management as this disease negatively impacts your quality of life.

    How serious can it get if left untreated?
    Can become darker and spread to other areas if protective measures are not used or the triggers not removed.

    How is it diagnosed? What is the treatment?
    The dermatologist will diagnose it clinically (i.e. by simply examining your skin). Woods lamp may help in assessing the depth. In doubtful cases and to rule out other diagnoses, a biopsy may be needed (very rare).

    Are there any OTC products that work? If yes, some of their names.
    OTC sunscreens and another lightening cream. However, some of them contain harmful topical steroids which may harm your skin.

    What are the other medications and treatment options available?
    Dermatologist may prescribe some pigment reducing creams containing one or more of the following: hydroquinone, azelaic acid, retinoids, kojic acid, arbutin, licorice extract etc. Sunscreens and sun avoidance are necessary. Chemical peels and Fractional lasers are adjuvants, it is a chronic recalcitrant disorder and nothing cures it.

    Are there any home remedies?
    Sour milk, turmeric etc are applied for a bleaching effect

    What are the Dos and Don'ts?

    Sun avoidance

    Sun protection

    Healthy diet (fruits and salads) rich in antioxidants


    Direct sun exposure

    Apply OTC creams containing Topical steroids

    How can Melasma be prevented?
    As mostly it develops without any cause, it is difficult to prevent it. If there are any clear triggering factors like oral contraceptives, these can be removed.
